Popcorn balls made the easy way with marshmallows. I took this basic recipe and gave it a Halloween makeover.
- 12 cups popped popcorn
- 3⁄4 cup toasted pumpkin seeds
- 3⁄4 cup M&M'
- 1⁄4 cup butter (1/2 stick)
- 1 (10 1/2 ounce) bag miniature marshmallows
- 1 (3 ounce) package Jello gelatin (orange for Halloween)
- 1 tablespoon butter (for greasing hands)
Directions See How It's Made
- Put popcorn in the biggest bowl you have.
- Add pumpkin seeds and M&M's. Mix with a spoon to distribute evenly.
- In a separate microwaveable bowl put butter and whole bag of marshmallows together and microwave on high about 2 minuets or until marshmallows are puffed. Using potholders take bowl out of microwave (Careful! Hot!) and add dry jello to marshmallows. Stir until mixture is all the same color.
- Pour marshmallow mixture over popcorn mixture and quickly stir until evenly coated.
- Let mixture cool for a couple of minuets then grease hands with butter and form mixture into balls.
